Hi folks, I'm new here as I'm thinking of buying a Pro ceed.

Took a test drive the other day & I liked it.
What really puts me off is what I've been reading about door mechanism's freezing up.
How many of you have had this problem?

Have read about the frozen door problem but also read that there was a dealer fit kit that prevented water getting to the mechanism and causing the problem. Last winter even with -17 C temps never had a problem thus came to the conclusion that newer Ceedscame factory fitted with the neccessary bits.

Don't worry about it, if its a new car it will have the modified locks, if not get the dealer to fit the modification.

The driver door was fine, and the passenger door was only an issue for a day or two, never happened since.
The dealers should sort it if it is the old mechanism and it ever happens anyway.
